It will be held in Hackerspace KL in Uptown Damansara on 19 Sept 2010,  The idea is to have a meetup of people interested in foss, and see what we are up to,  and to talk about free software to those that is new to it. In the end of the day, we plan  to have a fragfest, the condition is, it must be a foss game, bzflag or what not.

More about Software Freedom Day


Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit organization Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.

This is schedule for the Day, the planned talk don't goes as plan, it is replaced by Lightning Talk and video screening. I still hoping to have a gathering of foss geeks in KL.... 
A little explanation on what is Lightning Talk. Lightning talk is a 5 minute presentation volunteered by attendee on topic related to the event. So I hope to hear on foss related story that you have, or free culture, or open hardware stuff, from all of you guys during SFDKL. Though I doubt that 30 minute is enough for a lightning talk

  • 10:00 AM : Welcome + Lightning Talk
  • 11:00 AM : Screening of Revolution OS / Patent Absurdity/Code Rush
  • 12:30 PM : Lunch and mingle around aka networking
  • 13:30 PM : Unix G33kz
  • 15:30 PM : Frag Fest
I hope to see all of you guys there!!!!
